many undocumented workers are more afraid to call police in order to report crimes or be witnesses. that's because of two new immigration agents helping with the department with gang investigations. for more on this emotional issue for community members and police, nora campos joining us live this morning are you thanks for being here today. we know you used to be a city council member in san jose for 10 years. now you are in the state assembly. obviously, san jose is close to your heart. tell us about the problems going on. we have seen the murder rate just skyrocket this year. >> you are absolutely right. i was on the council for 10 years. it is where my base is at. when i am involved in issues that pertain to ticking sure that public safety continues to happen in san jose, it's a priority. it should be a priority for our current mayor. you know, you brought up about ice for you to understand why we are where we are today, you have to understand how we got here. in 2008, the mayor made a huge
8:16 am
promise to increase police officers by 100 police officers. >> we've just seen police cuts. >> we saw 67 police officers have been cut. in 2010, he also cut the violent crimes unit, which actually handled the gang activity. this past year, we know that we are at 22 homicides in the city of san jose. >> which is really an alarming number. at this point, things are seeming rather desperate when it comes to want for it. that's why you called in the ice agents -- not you personally, but that's why the city decided to call in these agents. tell us what they are doing. we are talking about federal agents at work with the police department. >> well, they are doing what one of our units should have been doing. in 1993, we adopted and put a special unit that just handles gang activity. that was cut last year. now they are having to go out
8:17 am
side and the poor resources, but i think the most important thing we need to remember is that in every city, we are all facing these issues where our crime rates are increasing, our homicides are increasing, and public safety should be the number 1 priority for all cities, including one of the cities that is right here in the bay area, the city of san jose. in 2006, we used to be the safest big city in america. >> certainly not the case any longer. to call in these federal agents. a lot of people are concerned about this. a lot of people who are here legally, are afraid they will be targeted id space agency and what do say to that? >> i know that the chief of police has made a public comment that their specific duty is going to be handling the gang activities in the city of san jose. we know that all those 22 crimes that have happened, homicides,
8:18 am
14 of them are gang related. >> but how can witnesses be sure that they are not targeted if somebody else forward to make a statement and a gang-related murder at the agents would not turn around on them? how can people be assured of that? >> it goes back to our mayor and back to her chief of police. they need to make sure that they are putting the checks and balances in place so that citizens can be safe and feel that they can come forward and that they won't be retaliated against. that is why it is so important that the city of san jose continue to make public safety and officers a priority in hiring our own in the city of san jose. >> in the meantime, are you okay with these agents being here? what is your feeling on that personally? >> i have to tell you, personally, i'm concerned that the mayor continues to cut the police force. >> are you okay with agents? >> i have concerns. i have concerns that we are not addressing the issues of the community. everyone should have those concerns. people should feel safe in their city and in their home. >> expert joining us this morning.
